The electric version of the NV200 is currently on display at the 2014 Geneva motor show.
This is the very model being built in Holland that will go into service in Amsterdam later this summer, joining the already popular EV.
Given the same general model name as the future London a Taxi, it is indeed very different to the petrol version that will be going into service in London, later this year.
We have some of the first pictures showing the interior.
Although being comfortable, the small windows can make it feel a bit claustrophobic. The panoramic roof will be very welcome in the London Taxi version.
First major difference we noticed, was that all interior seats face forward. It doesn't appear to have been engineered to perform the 25 feet turning circle, has no side wheelchair access and has no panoramic roof.
The drivers position is extremely comfortable. It has bluetooth phone connectability through the vehicles radio speaker system, with fingertip controls in easy reach on the steering wheel.
Surely, a law suit waiting to happen
As French company Bollore Group (BOL) get set to quadruple the amount of charging posts in Central London, lawyers will be rubbing their hands. Looks like an accident waiting to happen.
Plus, we are reliably informed that of the 1,600 charging posts currently in London, only four are suitable for fast charging, essential for taxis.
Wonder how much that blue extention lead will fetch on the black market?
And, The Liberty Takers Are At It Again:
Also, noticed down by the London eye were these two new modle sporting Addison Lee livery. To be confirmed but it looks like Addi Lee are showing off new electric zero Emmission vehicles.
Typical of the Euston minicab firm, they've illegally parked on a a Licensed Taxi Rank, obstructing Taxi drivers from working. Also in their present form, these two vehicles do not confirm to the conditions of fitness for private hire vehicles.
